    Mission with huge bomber formation

    Hi everyone!
    Have anyone created a mission with huge bomber formation (let's say at least 30-50 bombers or preferably more) and if so, can you post a link to this mission?
    Right now I'm flying il-2 box, but I got interested in this one, especially in context of incoming Tobruk.
    In il-2 box I've never seen formation bigger then ~10 aircraft. I heard that huge formations are possible in il-2 cod and I would love to check that and see how sim's engine and my computer can handle it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Maser and welcome to the forum.

    Try this one - you are piloting a Spitfire MK1a 100 octane and you’re faced with 72 He111’s (and some other nasties - watch out for the...”snappers”! )

    Enjoy!

    Thank you so much ATAG_Snapper for your wonderful mission and Mysticpuma for creating missions especially for me! You guys are very helpful!
    I've tested both of them already and what I've noticed is that my cpu can't handle that (first gen i7-950, but graphics card should be fine gtx 1060 6gb). Even on lowest details and resolution, after merging with enemy bombers I get in between 3-12 fps. While testing with much smaller plane set and even on ATAG online (unfortunately also with just few players in the air) it is around 60 fps all the time.

    But...from what I've seen playing your missions it is an AMAZING experience!! I really love it! I have to upgrade my cpu though.

    And there is something in this graphics I can't describe properly that makes it look much more realistic in some respects to much newer il-2 box. I suspect it might be lighting or less filtered image, but it looks great. From low altitudes ground details and objects in general look better in il-2 box but at high altitude I can immerse more with this il-2 cod graphics.

    I'm waiting for Tobruk now...and in meanwhile I wish for more players online

    Thank you guys and see you in the skies!
